, but a good man. host: i will let you take that. guest: a lot of foreign policy groups are opposed to him because they feel he is too critical to iran. another factor is the senate is a club. there is a lot of personality involved. there are a lot of prominent senators that do not like chuck hagel. i do not know what it is. he spoke his mind. that may bother a lot of people. there is a lot of intense opposition. the obama administration floated his name. i do not the that means the president is committed to nominating him. i think they put his name out to see the reaction. host: the caller said he believes president obama caves too much. guest: i am not sure if is a cave because they do not think president obama is that committed to nominating him i think he was willing to go through with the rice nomination, but she pulled out. there is always a calculation to be made as to how much political capital you want to spend in the nomination fight. i am told he was considering up anyway.e's name host: hilda solis is the secretary of labor. any indication she is thinking about going? guest: no,
